How do we train our tutors?
All our tutors are fully qualified teachers and have recent experience of teaching the national curriculum. Tutors receive a thorough induction to the NTP before commencing sessions, which includes specific training on:
- Planning 1−2−1 and small group sessions
- Adapting to online tuition
- Creating session content
- Giving and receiving feedback
How will we communicate with you?
Schools will have a designated consultant to manage all bookings. Booking confirmations will be sent immediately with a secure online link to tutors’ safeguarding information. Consultants are available around-the-clock by phone or email. They’ll also assist with any system training and arrange weekly calls and regular meetings to review performance.
How will we keep track of pupil progress?
Schools will be asked provide tutors with attainment levels data for each student. We would provide schools with weekly quantitative reports on the number of sessions delivered, duration and attendance, and a weekly qualitative report for each student including information about their engagement levels, session objectives and outcomes and other general feedback.
